We are excited to celebrate the 6th annual African American Pre-Commencement here at Bakersfield College. The pre-commencement celebration honor African American students who have successfully completed their degree or certificate from Bakersfield College. During the ceremony, each graduate will walk across the stage as his/her name is announced and will be draped in a Kente Cloth.
The Kente Cloth, developed in Ghana, is associated with class and royal status. The Kente communicates identity, community, and pride. It is seen as a source of strength, power, and the achievement of high education.
